Can I bring over-sized luggage with me on the bus ?

Yes you can!

As long as there is room under the bus, oversized luggage is allowed on Greyhound buses for an extra fee. The fee varies depending on the size of your luggage and will be paid directly at the bus station upon checking in the bus.

Greyhound defines "oversized" as any baggage over 62 inches (157 cm) when you add together length, width and height.

Please note that bicycles, golf clubs, skis and ski poles must be packed in a wood, canvas or other substantial container, and securely fastened.


Happy travels!
